- Dr. Haworth, at what age or what point you became inspire to help women facing childhood illnesses & trauma?
My sleep schedule is anything but consistent! I do, however, make sure I get 8-10 hours a night. It is rare that I allow myself to have less than that but it does happen for various reasons. Sleep is food, I believe. It is the time of day that our bodies repair and rejuvenate themselves. Having said that, sleep is an individual thing. Some people tend to require less of it than others. It is similar to diet in this way. Not everything works for everyone all the time.
You have to find what works for you with your schedule. If you can get to bed at the same time each night, great! But, that is not the case when you’ve got worries, hormones, noise, events, kids, or travel schedules keeping you up. Change is a constant when it comes to sleep. Your body will tell you if you’re not getting enough of it in a myriad of ways from being overtired to feeling cloudy headed. Obviously, there are many factors that can contribute to those problems. The key is in finding what best works for you to get as much deep, rejuvenating sleep as possible.
